The objective of the festival is three-fold: Firstly, to create a platform for local artists to come and exhibit their talents.

And finally, to give the Performing Arts a place in the cultural ethos of Nagpur Stagecraft’s fiesta is a small step in this direction.
There are two other important things for all the participants to note. One, there will be no PA systems available. Therefore, all artists will have to perform unplugged or on live music. Two, performances on Bollywood item numbers will not be accepted.
